Only 1 block from the Toms River, set high on the Island Heights bluff, this original “L-Style” Victorian historic camp meeting cottage was built in 1883. It stands today as one of the only original camp meeting cottages left in Island Heights with very few architectural modifications. This home was featured in the NJ Star Ledger for it’s restoration, and is truly a one-of-a-kind gem. Walkable access to beach and river, in a quiet and peaceful family-friendly setting.

This house was so clean and comfortable! I will recommend Beth to anyone looking for an east coast vacation rental. It is just a couple blocks from water and just a few minutes drive to the shore. Absolutely amazing host, location, and home.
